Australia batsman Shaun Marsh has made it clear that he still has a chance of reviving his Test career after being dropped for the upcoming tour of Bangladesh.

Marsh’s axing from the Test side comes after he was limited to 151 runs, which included two half-centuries, at an average of 18.87 in the four-Test series against India in February-March, which Australia lost 2-1.

Since he was left out of the national team for their trip to Bangladesh in August, Marsh has opted for an extended county stint with Yorkshire.

But, the 33-year-old knows that the only way he will earn his spot back is to score as many runs as possible.

“I certainly haven’t given up the dream of playing for Australia again,” he told Yorkshire’s website. “But I probably know at my age I have to score a mountain of runs to get back in.

“It’s a long way off at the moment, but if I put runs on the board…it all starts here. Then, if I have a strong start to the season with Western Australia back home, you never know.

“But it’s not something I’m thinking about at the moment. I want to perform well for Yorkshire in the T20s first and foremost, then red ball cricket and go home with a few runs under my belt.”
